I was out by Gum Springs community center taking a walk. I heard screaming then we heard gun shots in the next neighborhood over. Next we heard police and helicopters. Any news what's going on?!?
My puppy is missing. His name is Cam. He was with me in the car last night, Saturday April 11 when I took the trash out. I went to 7-eleven on Edsall and Van Dorn after. There was a man asking for money outside and two other men came up. One went inside and the other stayed outside. When I came out, Cam was no longer in the car. I thought I locked my car but I must not have. This was about 10:30pm. Please help me find him. He’s a ShihTzu. He’s about 9 lbs and 1 year old. PLEASE SHARE. Thanks for your help.
